Caring and empathic, Marina is professionally trained in analytical counselling, the Hakomi method of experiential psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, dreamwork and reiki.
|Please note: I will be on Leave of Absence from 1st January 2015 to 31st December 2015. Thank you, Marina|
With a special focus on women's issues and eating disorders, no personal issue is out of bounds for Marina.
For more information about the services that are on offer or to organise a time to come in for a session, just give her a call!
I found my sessions with Marina very rewarding, the combination of counselling and hypnotherapy great.
Being nervous on my first visit quickly vanished entering her room, which is very welcoming and comfortable. Marina also is friendly and able to put you at ease.
The combination that Marina uses is very good. Working on your emotions that pertain to the problem at hand. Your feed back is a very important part too.
Hypnotherapy is not what some perceive it to be. It's really just a form of deep relaxation with suggestion made to you whilst in this state to help with the problem at hand. When returning to normal state I was alert and calm with a feeling of contentment and ease.
All in all, I would say that my sessions are wonderful. I feel a new sense of confidence and self esteem returned to me. A relief from stresses and problems relating to depression also minimised.
One Happy Customer.

I started smoking when I was 14 and in recent years had tried a number of things to help me give up the habit, but none were successful for more than a few weeks.
Last year, a close friend suggested I try Hypnotherapy as this had worked for one of her family members. Initially I was hesitant, and somewhat sceptical that this would help me any more than the other methods I had tried. But my friend persisted to the point where she searched the internet, found Marina's contact details and sent them to me suggesting I take the first step and make contact.
I did take this step, and a 52 years of age, and having smoked for 38 years I made an appointment with Marina.
I must say, this is one of the best things I have done in my life on a personal basis. it was a remarkable meeting, one which you must experience to fully appreciate, and I have now been free of the habit for 18 months.
I feel healthier, cleaner, and more alert and I no longer even have a thought about smoking.
Most importantly I generally feel better about myself through this achievement.
Several months after my meeting with Marina my 18 year old son said to me "I am really proud of you Dad". There is no better outcome than that!
I believe my example shows what can be achieved with the support of friends and family combined with professional help.
Thank you Marina, I am glad I took that first step!

I sought help from Marina to come to terms with a body ravaged by surgery and left in constant discomfort. My sessions with Marina were owned and driven by me but her natural, caring approach enabled me to open up and rid myself of an emotional tumour that has been with me since childhood. By attending to the fear and nurturing my inner child, Marina set me on the path to freedom. Freedom from the anxiety that has been eating away at me from the inside for forty years. The surgical wounds cannot be healed, but free from my emotional burden, my digestion is greatly improved and I am no longer on 'red alert', being controlled by my stomach. Thanks to Marina I feel reborn and know that I have the inner strength to not only overcome difficulties but to go out and grab life with both hands and go for it!
With sincere thanks

Marina was welcoming right from my initial contact with her on the telephone. Her calm nature and ability to be "real" enabled me to feel comfortable and less overwhelmed during my sessions with her. Marina provided a safe space for me to discover parts of myself that had been ignored for some time. Together her and I allowed those parts to be present and respected. This was always done at my pace and on my terms. As I come from an eating disorder background it was important for me to have a counsellor not only with knowledge of an eating disorder but also empathy and to allow me to take the reins forward. Every step and achievement was celebrated which gave me motivation to go forward. Counselling with Marina was not about providing the correct answer or a quick fix but it was about my discovery of me in my time.

Thank you very much for your help. Through the hypnotherapy sessions with you and your advice on the Cd I have departed successfully on my new career.
I started apprenticeship as a jockey and my goal is to become a confident, successful and intuitive rider in the trials and later on in races. i have finished sixteen trials successfully and hopefully will get my racing license soon.
Hypnotherapy sessions with you made me realise that unconscious mind is as important as the conscious one and I am very grateful that you showed me the way how to discover new possibilities that are within me.

I want to thank you for all your assistance in helping me to look at what I needed to accept/change in my life. I have found it difficult, but on speaking with you and knowing that I was safe whilst with you to approach and look at these areas of myself I have grown. I am much happier these days, and have a much better understanding of myself.
Sometimes I find myself sitting and re-thinking much of the advice that you provided, which again and again helps me. I keep finding that inner voice.
